Misdemeanors in Virginia

Misdemeanor crimes are categorized in classes, from most to least serious. As you can see below, misdemeanors can often result in serious fines and even significant jail time for those convicted.

Virginia classifies misdemeanors in the following classes:

  • Class 1 – These are considered the most serious crimes classified as misdemeanors. Class 1 misdemeanors include carrying a gun without the required permit, DUI, and domestic violence. They are punishable by jail terms of up to 12 months, fines of up to $2,500, or both.
  • Class 2 – Examples of crimes in this class include reckless driving, possessing drug paraphernalia, or a Schedule IV drug. The sentence could be up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine, or both.
  • Class 3 – This type of crime is not punishable with jail time. A conviction may result in a fine of up to $500. Examples include possession of a Schedule V drug.
  • Class 4 – These are the least serious crimes, such as public intoxication or possession of a Schedule VI drug. The punishment is a fine of up to $250.
